Intelligent intelligence procedural
Intelligent, generally low-drama stories. No guns, no suave agents, no quirky plots or characters. Just clever, and not so clever, people trying to convince Lt. Col. Pinto that they are who they say they are. He must distinguish subterfuge and human weakness from heroism and banality.
So far my favorite episode is Friend or Foe. If you're a Carleton Hobbs fan, I think he makes an appearance in The Infernal Triangle. If you like Spy Catcher's realism you might like the espionage drama The Sandbaggers.

Exciting Espionage Stories
A BBC radio series, true stories from the memoirs of Oreste Pinto, Dutch counterintelligence officer. Set during and after WWII, most episodes centre around the interrogation by Pinto of one or more refugees who have escaped to England.
Sound quality is good. Recommended!
